Vesuvianite -Purple phantom
stock #17.AL-500
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.5 x 3.5 x 3 CM (miniature)
price: $1250
pre Tucson 2015 update

An especially bright and lustrous specimen of gemmy Vesuvianite with rare phantoms of deep purple enclosed by a lighter green exterior. In very good (but not absolutely perfect condition), what looks like damage in the photos is actually reflections inside these glass- clear crystals. There is some outside edge damage and contacts/ chipping that can be best seen with magnification, so not for ultra perfectionists, but this habit with bright color phantom is very rare. This is an excellent example.
Fluorite on Galena
stock #15.1-092
Naica Mine. Naica, Municipio de Saucillo
Chihuahua, Mexico
6.6 x 4.2 x 5.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $80
pre Tucson 2015 update

A nice, clear example of the classic Naica Mine Fluorite with beveled edge cubes on contrasting Galena. Some back edge chips are noted so this is priced to be especially affordable but it displays like a much more expensive piece.
Shattuckite with Malachite
stock #ALEC-4-285
Kaokoveld Plateau
Kunene Region, Namibia
11.2 x 6.4 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $3250
pre Tucson 2015 update

An intense color, well crystalized large Shattuckite with fine malachite sprays and sparkling luster. One of the nicest of this style, this displays well from any angle, and the color is very much "electric". This find produced the best Shattuckites ever seen and this is an especially choice example. Much more three dimensional than most and with great display impact, in fine condition. On close exam many small doubly terminated Quartz crystals are seen that are a brilliant blue color from included Shattuckite and add a lot of flash. Compared to other fine pieces this is a great value.
Elbaite on Quartz
stock #7.1-009
Chamachu, Haramoush Mts.
Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
9.1 x 5 x 6 CM (cabinet)
price: $490
pre Tucson 2015 update

A big, clear to milky terminated quartz crystal is the host for two color zoned Elbaite tourmalines that are both doubly terminated. The Elbaites are undamaged and each shows two different habits of termination. An early Skardu piece, this style just is not found anymore.
Fluorite on Quartz
stock #ALEC-27-216
Yaogangxian Tungsten Mine, Yizhang County
Hunan, China
8.9 x 1.1 x 4.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $260
pre Tucson 2015 update

A choice, sharp, clear Fluorite cube is neatly sitting like a jewel on a flattened quartz plate that is itself complexly crystalized. An older, classic style Yaoganxian specimen Ex. Terry Szenics collection, this better quality is no longer produced and the mine is shut down.
Silver crystals on Copper crystals
stock #Alec-19-201
Osceola Mine, Osceola, Houghton County
Michigan, United States
4.9 x 2.7 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $320
pre Tucson 2015 update

An odd yet quite attractive specimen which is very well crystallized. The matrix is mostly all copper, some of it is crystallized with flattened octahedra and some standing fingers of crystals. The main event is the Silver that is crystallized in twisting fingers and branches contrasting to the copper. A little Malachite and a blue mineral (Chalcanthite?) are visible too. The blue could be cleaned off but it adds interest as is in my opinion. The condition is perfect, the esthetics are distinctive and not typical.
Vesuvianite (rare color, classic, closed location)
stock #17.AL-496
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos
Quebec, Canada
4.6 x 3.5 x 2.8 CM (miniature)
price: $1950
pre Tucson 2015 update

Intense emerald green color (not the usual deep green) often labeled as Chrome Vesuvianite is one of the rarest and most desirable. Jeffrey mine Vesuvianites are without peer in the mineral world, the color array is incredible and this green example is first rate. The main crystals are up to 2.5 CM, and doubly terminated but smaller ones are only singly. The terminations on most of the crystals are an unusual flat or multi stepped type that may look like damage with a quick glance . There is some damage on this piece seen when studied carefully and some evidence of re-crystallization on a few zones. Still overall this is a fine display piece as nearly all of these that exist do have at least a little damage. Far better in person.
Vanadinite
stock # 7.AE-247
Mibladen, Midelt, Khenifra Province,
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
3.2 x 3.3 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $230
pre Tucson 2015 update

A nice specimen with large, stout crystals from the greatest locale of all time for Vanadinite, Mibladen. At 2.9 CM, the biggest crystal is quite large for the specie and is well perched on the smaller supporting crystals. Good color and luster, the backsides of the crystals are also complete but have the typical tan color, so the bright red is the logical display side.
